Category talk:Reissiger, Carl Gottlieb
One or two of the chamber works do exist in new editions (as do a larger number of his choral and orchestral works) so caution is as usual advisable even with this composer (an overture of whose once had some currency even in the mid-19th century, I gather, and a disc of whose clarinet works has been recorded now, on the label Talent as of June 2008. This is in addition to a few other recordings of his music including one of flute arrangements by the flutist, of three of his violin sonatas (on Pavane, from 1997), another with a concertino in D (op. 60) on Claves some years back performed by Peter-Lukas Graf. A concertino in E-flat in piano arrangement - Graf performed with orchestra - is on the new recording, and was on a Koch Schwann CD in orchestral guise back in the late 1980s. Various lieder etc. seem to have appeared here and there; nothing on recording I know of from Reissiger's (sole?) symphony in E-flat, or from his chamber works, or his oratorio, or for that matter his waltz famously attributed to Weber.)

As to the partial list, I wonder what the first thirteen op.nos. are... I'm surprised for some reason- re op.172 - that he wrote something for organ - but then he wrote quite a lot of liturgical music as well. Getting more interested rather than less. Anyways.)

RISM mentions the following 1919 book - Kreiser, Kurt: Carl Gottlieb Reissiger. Sein Leben nebst einigen Beiträgen zur Geschichte des Konzertwesens in Dresden - which seems to contain information on many of his early elusive works. Eric 04:38, 31 December 2011 (UTC) Sibley has now uploaded this book, Kreiser's dates are 1891-1945, so...!
